“GIVE MORE LOVE” WITH 10 NEW ORIGINAL TRACKS AND 4 BONUS TRACKS

By Posted on 0 9

Give More Love is Ringo Starr’s 19th solo album since The Beatles disbanded.
Give More Love picks up where his last studio album, 2015s Postcards From Paradise left off. Using many of the same musicians from his last album, and several from his current All Starr Tour, Ringo has returned with an album containing a few surprises. Getting a great deal of attention is the fact that Paul McCartney plays on two songs, the rocking “We’re On The Road Again” and the ballad “Show Me The Way”. McCartney and Starr have guested on each other’s albums several times going back to Starr’s Ringo album released in 1973. Although it is not a huge surprise, it is nice to hear the two Beatles playing together again and they sound fantastic.

Ringo teams up with former All Starrs, such as Peter Frampton and Joe Walsh, and even Dave Stewart makes a return. Ringo gets a chance to co-write with these artists, as well as Steve Lukather, a current member of The All Starrs.

Since 1997, Ringo has co-produced his albums. As with his last album, he is producing it on his own, and even had a hand in mixing it, with long time collaborator Bruce Sugar. Ringo has learned a great deal about production over the years, and this album sounds fantastic. Nostalgic, yet current, and the mix is perfect. This is quite an accomplishment when you are mixing some of rock’s legends playing together. Yet Ringo does, and the album sounds like a group project throughout.

The songs are what you would expect from Ringo, straight rock and roll and some ballads. Lyrically the songs range from peace anthems (one of the many highlights “Give More Love”), love songs (“Show Me The Way”) and autobiographical songs (“Electricity”).
A new release from Ringo is always worthy of a celebration, but what makes this album a little more special from his last album are the four bonus songs. A new version of “Back Off Boogaloo”, based on the original writing demo Ringo recently found when moving house. Along with Joe Walsh and Jeff Lynne, he has built a new version which also includes clever use of the original 1972 release. Ringo also works with the indie artist Vandaveer to record new versions of “Don’t Pass Me By” and “Photograph”. While neither top the originals, they are both fresh and vibrant and sound stunning. He also enlists Anglo-Swedish rockers Alberta Cross to record a new version of the obscure song “Can’t Fight Lightning”. Again, not as good as the original 1980 recording, but new and different life is breathed into the song and it is a welcome addition to Give More Love.

Ringo is 77, and currently touring and continues to issue a new album every other year. This year will also see the release of two older albums on vinyl. One, Bad Boy, has been out of print since 1978, and the other, I Wanna Be Santa Claus, has never been on vinyl.
GIVE MORE LOVE is a brilliant album.

GIVE MORE LOVE: UNFADABLE ROCK & ROLL OPTIMISM

By Posted on 2 , 15

GIVE MORE LOVE features a blink and you’ll miss it moment referring to the “Fab Four”. In Don’t Pass Me By, Starr croons “I’d like to be under the sea” as the track slowly fades out.
“That’s a homage to one of my songs called Octopus’s Garden,” he explained about the 1969 song in the famous Abbey Road album.
“I thought it was an interesting thing to put those songs I’ve done before but with these young bands,” he said.

Collaborations between the last two surviving members of the Beatles always generate media frenzy. When Ringo posted a picture on Twitter of the two of them working together back in February, the news quickly spread.
“When we’re together it’s good because we spent a lot of very intense time together, a lot of loving time together,” he told at a London hotel.
“For me, he’s just an incredible human being, beside an incredible bass player,” he added.

The reminiscing in “Give More Love” goes further still than his time in history’s top-selling pop group.
“Electricity” references the Liverpool of his youth, and his Rory and the Hurricanes’ bandmate Johnny Guitar.
“He played so great. I have great memories of his playing to this day and that was a long time ago,” said Ringo, who now spends most of his time in Beverly Hills in the United States.

 

 
Ringo will’ll be doing eight shows in October at a Las Vegas casino followed by a short US tour.
“I’m not looking to retire, it doesn’t make sense for me,” he said. “I can go as long as I can hold the sticks.”

BBC Newsnight: RINGO EXPLAINS WHY HE IS IN FAVOUR OF BREXIT

By Posted on 0 19

“The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,” Ringo says

Ringo has explained why he is in favour of Brexit.

Ringo previously said he made the decision to vote leave in last year’s EU referendum because the EU was a “shambles”. Now, speaking on BBC’s Newsnight, Starr urged the British government to “get on with” Brexit negotiations.

“The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,” Ringo said. “Suddenly, it’s like, ‘Oh, well, we don’t like that vote. What do you mean you don’t like that vote? You had the vote, this is what won, let’s get on with it.” Reiterating again how he agreed with Brexit, Ringo added: “But don’t tell Bob Geldof.” He also said: “I think it’s a great move. I think, you know, to be in control of your country is a good move.”
